CSS Inspiration Blog Hop

It's time for another GinaK CenterStage Spotlight Team Blog Hop!

Each artist was asked to design their project by drawing inspiration from these photos of the AMAZING Christmas Cookie Bouquet the CSS Team sent to Gina's DT Coordinator Jessica Fick:

I went a completely different direction then I initially planned, originally I was going to make a card. I was digging through my stack of papers I have with addresses and the light bulb went on, yea!! I have been wanting a new system for a while and I finally did it!! I decided to use the colors in the cookies and was able to incorporate most of them!! I started out with 8 1/2 x 11 chipboard and cut it in half, I stamped the vines from Theresa's set Autumn Beauty with Versamark and heat embossed with Clear Embossing Powder on Gina's gorgeous Ocean Mist cardstock. I have had these chipboard letters for quite a while, played around with them to see what looked best and applied. I then took this pretty flower from Nina's set Lovely Shelf, colored with copics, added Crystal Effects to the vase and Christmas Red Stickles to the center of the flowers. I didn't take a photo but on the inside I printed out sheets for name, address, phone, etc. and started filling in the information!! Finally I used my Bind-It-All to put it together. Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the hop!!
